This is evidence that Debbie Stabenow should forgo who senate race in 2012 and let someone else run and run for Governor instead.

Cherry and Quinn both are mediocre candidates and could possible risk losing both governorships in IL and MI with their tax increases.  I think Debbie Stabenow and Lisa Madigan who both share their ancestory and stance on taxes to run and the republicans won't have taxes to run on.

Michigan is in such terrible economic shape that I don't see how the Dems can win there.  Also, if there are no noticeable gains in the state's economy by 2014 then whichever unlucky Republican gets elected will surely lose.

There are two rules of thought on that the Dems don't have to impose income tax increases, if they run on the Madigan plan impose fee increases on license plates, stickers and raise revenue by either lottery or casinos the Dems aren't as doomed as you might think in the Midwest.  They will be doomed if you go ahead like Quinn and impose an income tax increase.

I think Michigan will eventually smarten up. Granholm is a bad governor. Hoekstra is the man MI needs!!

Hoekstra 2010!!!!


 Hoekstra for President 2016!! (If Palin loses in 2012)

A bad governor in a pro-union state.   Michigan just like Pennsylvania and New Jersey are pro-unions and just like always Republicans start out strong but when the GOTV effort goes out, alongside the unions they Dems seem to better once that time comes

Hydrogen energy is in and the Republican are the big gas and oil party. I don't think republicans could shake that label.
